I've posted before about needing a larger capacity cup than my medium Meluna, and I ended up buying a large Fleurcup. My period is just starting, and I'm super excited to get to try it out!

It's very different to insert than my Meluna. I'm used to using a diamond fold and coaxing my cup open, but the Fleur seems to want to pop open entirely of its own volition, and a punchdown fold seems to be working for me. At first it felt pretty big, but I felt that way about the Meluna when I first got it and now that seems normal, so I'm sure this will too soon enough.

I'm off to bed, so I'll get to see in the morning if it's going to last me through the night better than my smaller cup has the last few months.

So how do you like it? It's quickly becoming my favourite cup, I like to hear other people's impressions, too. I agree, it's a no-fail to open. And weird how for me the large is more comfortable than the small, even...

I'm really liking it! I've cut the stem off now, as that was sticking out and annoying me. I've gotten the hang of getting it in before it decides to wants to open, and removal is easy.

The best thing is though, I had it in for 10 hours staight yesterday (my heaviest day) and again overnight and NO leaking!

I think from now on the Fleur is going to be my cup for the first two days, with the Meluna for the last day as things slow down.
